Menno Aden, Artist from Berlin structures, systems, cartographic photography, topography

Over Head

Ceilings of the former U.S. Headquarter offices in Berlin-Dahlem. Aden captured a moment of this orphaned building's turbulent history during the Cold War – the time of transition up to its current reconstruction. Preserved by photography, this moment is carried into the present. Here are the observations of a pathfinder who scans the building for material remains of its now faded, historically significant function.
